    Summary

    Looking in the mirror that night, TJ tilts his head this way and that, trying to see the angles of his face better, the cleft in his chin, the blue eyes under dark eyebrows. He glances down at the history book open on the counter, a black and white photo of a guy in an Army uniform smiling up at him with the same eyes, the same chin. James Buchanan Barnes, it reads. TJ looks back up at the mirror. Thomas James Hammond looks back at him.

     

    “Nice to meet you, Uncle Bucky,” TJ says, and his reflection smiles back.

    Summary

    (This is in continuity with my other works in this fandom; it is a prequel, taking place during the War.)

    Bucky Barnes comes to terms with what it means that Steve's in love with a woman.
    Peggy, on the other hand, thinks they can make this work out just fine.

    It could have a happy ending, but since this is Captain America, it just has a sad unresolved one. But if you like, you can AU it to your own fix-it happy of what could have been. At least in this case, I take no responsibility for the angst.

    mild tws: not exactly suicidal thoughts, but close. period-appropriate inward-directed mild homophobia/denial.

    Summary

    Steve lives in Stark Tower and doesn't have much to do when he's not going after Hydra strongholds. He attends charity events to make Pepper happy. He goes hiking with Sam. He hangs out with Clint in Bed-Stuy and watches Dog Cops. Sometimes Tony gives him super alcohol in a sippy cup. Sometimes he sees Bucky out of the corner of his eye and wonders if it's real or if he's starting to lose his mind.

    Alternately, the one with terrible jokes, a foot chase through the Lower East Side, and a tiny little robot named Shitcan.

    Summary

    I wasn't sure what this was going to be when I started it, but it has grown into something almost startlingly coherent, if I do say so myself. They don't find Bucky, he finds himself.

    Steve and Sam return from a futile tour of the globe on the heels of the ghost of the Winter Soldier to find a pile of postcards with the names of confirmed-killed HYDRA agents waiting at Stark Tower: mission reports from the ghost to the only commanding officer he still feels he has.
    All of it is set to culminate in New York City... if Bucky can remember what he set up.

    With some Clint/Natasha, Bucky/Natasha, Steve/Sam pining, a whole bunch of friendship dynamics, gratuitous pop culture references (Bucky is obsessed with pop music, as a coping strategy), slash, het, and a lot of cussing.
